Have you ever wondered when you’ll die? Death is something that comes to all of us and it’s natural to be curious about it. But of course, nobody can know exactly when they’re going to die. Or can they?
As it turns out, more than a few people have in fact successfully predicted exactly when they’re going to die, and in some cases, right down to the exact day and cause. Today, we’re going to be looking at who these lucky people were so that you can decide. Did they have the gift of foresight or did their predictions manifest their own death?
Here are 10 People Who Eerily Predicted Their Own Deaths.
1. Bob Marley
Bob Marley, the famous Jamaican singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist, is known the world over for his effortless ability to blend reggae and ska into his timeless music. But he had another ability that was lesser known. Considered to be a prophet by his close friends and family, Bob Marley had the gift of prophecy. Growing up in the Saint Ann Parish in Jamaica, he would successfully predict people’s futures and read their palms while his friends watched in awe.
After predicting many events correctly, it unnerved people when Marley said that he would die at exactly the age of 36. When asked why he predicted that age specifically, he said that Jesus also lived until he was 36 years old. Of course, not everyone took this prediction to heart. That was, unbelievably, until, true to his word, on May 11th, 1981, Bob Marley died from skin cancer that spread to his lungs and brain. He was exactly 36 years old.
